Phenom II X6 Turbo Core question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm new to OC.Net....so go easy on me >_>

I've got my 1055T overclocked to 3.8GHz but would like to use turbo core to bump that up to 4GHz when it's only using 3 cores or less.

My problem is that if I use a program that is single or dual threaded, the workload seems to get split between all 6 cores and so turbo core only gets enabled for a second or two.

The only way I've been able to get TC to work properly is by settings the affinity to 1 or 2 cores. But to do this every time I launch an application would be a pain in the a$$.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks.

Nope nothing wrong
Turbo kinda cancels out with windows 7
Mines turbos 5 cores through AOD
but it only turbos for a few seconds
amd overdrive allows setting affinity

thanks a lot!

Might give AOC a try then!

Was thinking of swapping out the motherboard for the new ASUS Formula V AM3+ in preparation for my new FX8xxx CPUI'll be buying soon, maybe that can get me stable above 3.8GHz without Turbo Core.

It might be better than Turbo Core doesn't work. It could cause your system to fail by adding those extra GHz to an already pretty seriously overclocked system.
